Inflated Results

I really hate inflation. The monetary kind of course, as well as inflated data, inflated grades. It is never a really good indicator of how things are really going. I feel that way about the first week scale results. I have happily lost 9.5 lbs. Yes that is right. 9.5! Well, I'm not crazy excited about it for the reason that I know the 2nd week won't even be half that. It's an inflated number based on how much water I was retaining.

Now, I'm not completely without hope in my efforts this week. I've been doing very well. I've exercised 7/10 days of the New Year. I've been eating well. I feel great. But I won't expect another 9lb drop this week. I had my husband put away my scale after I weighed myself Saturday morning. I didn't want to have to fight the urge to weigh myself 3 times a day. As much as I know my weight fluctuates based on how much liquid I am drinking, I still get crazy obsessed.

I've been alternating my classes so I don't get too bored. Here's what I'm doing
Aqua Pump
Body Pump
Aqua Fitness

I want to get back into Body Flow Yoga, but I wanted to get my body a little more loosened up before I start doing that again.

:) Keep on!

  1. Obsession is my # 1 state of mind when it comes to food and exercise. Good luck with moderate thinking! You're definitely kicking ass on the exercise front.
